Subject: Very Impressive!
What seems like an old tale, but told with the latest technology, is simply great.
I had strong feelings which chaged with each scene.
I'll just say thanks!

Subject: Superb
A suspenseful and stylish movie. Awesome all along the line. A truly masterpiece!
Reviewer: Stephen Bell - - December 14, 2006
Subject: Well done!
I can't believe more people have not reviewed this. An excellent piece of work.

Good voice over (we'll forgive a couple of mispronunciations) lovely settings, good "acting" bringing everyone together superbly. The shot with the 10 children was excellent! You needed a faster processor or graphics card on the sideways walking shots but otherwise technically faultless. A "tour de force".

An easy five stars.

Oh my! Really beautiful and well done. It was creepy and pretty at the same time.
